2012-13 Revised Summer Internship Proposal Form

How many hours do I have to work to get a credit?

Typically a valid internship will include 160 hours of service to receive one course credit. Faculty supervisors may also require additional work in order to award academic credit, such as a journal or final project.

Will a summer internship help my GPA?

No. Internships are graded credit/no credit only.  They do not affect your GPA, but can earn a credit toward graduation or your major requirements.

What happened to that vacation block thing?

Most students will benefit from paying $400 to post the course to their transcript in the summer.  If students desire, for this summer only, students can still choose to post a summer internship to a vacation block in the 2011-2012 or 2012-2013 academic year.

Can I start in May?

No, internships must start after Block 9 and be completed by August 15.

Can I get credit for an internship I’ve already done or just started?

No. Internship credit is not awarded retroactively.

Can I still do an internship during the year?

Sure.  That is still included in your regular tuition cost, if you choose to use a block in this way.

Are there any prerequisites?

Students must have completed at least 8 course credits and find a faculty sponsor.

How much do they cost?

$400, or about $130 a credit hour.  It’s a steal.

Can I add it to my bill? 

No.  Payment for the Summer Internship must be paid to Business Services prior to submitting the registration proposal to the Registrar’s Office.

Can I get Financial Aid? 

Talk to the Financial Aid office.

How do I sign up?

Fill out the proposal form, get the required signatures, make your payment, and turn it in to the Registrar’s Office before the internship begins.
